The new Fire Emblem is out, in Europe, US, Asia, and it’s becoming huge already!
I never played any of the games, I do want to tho. I wanna play the 3ds games at least, Awakening and Fates, but I decided to try this out, because why not?
There’s definitely not the nostalgia or feels for me, since I don’t know these characters previously, but it’s an interesting game. The tactical part is very easy, and the game slowly gets harder without being frustrasting. Which is a bonus because I get frustrasted easily, and also hate when sprg/trpg take forever and a day to end one single battle. None of that here. Battles take 5-10 minutes, at least in the normal difficulty.
There’s also NO PERMA DEATHS, in case anyone was wondering~.
If you’ve seen games like Puzzles and Dragons, this is similar to it in terms of overall feel. You can summon ally heroes with orbs, you soend stamina for each battle, the stamina for each battle raises but your own doesn’t.
A thing that stood out to me was that the characters, both male and female, get their clothes ripped while fighting, and I LOVE THAT. Equal fanservice makes me happy asf 🙏🙏🙏🙏👌✨
Now the negatives are mostly about frustration with how some things got implemented.
First, the friend codes are pretty bad to type, to find, to use, just uuugh. I wish there was a copy function so we can just give people instead of trying to remenber or write it down, smh.
Second, and this is MAJOR, this game crashes A LOT. Like ridiculously a lot. More than any other game I’ve ever played. I have an Asus Memo Pad 7, and it’s not the best, but it has pretty nice ram. I’m not the only one that complained from this either, I saw other people on twitter mentioning it. The only way I made it stop crashing 5 times per battle or more was: TURN OFF ANIMATIONS AND BATTLES in settings. This does mean I don’t get to see those lovely illustrations getting ripped, but I’m doinf it for my mental sanity. Otherwise, I’ll have to quit the game, really it was unplayable for me without turning those off.
Third is how you can’t level the characters by using other cards, only using crystals/shards. I’m used to that gimmick of using lower tier cards, but in here those only give SP. SP unlocks new skills for the cards, but this also means if you spent time and stamina raising the level of said cards, then it’ll have been for nothing. Now, same tier cards do give some bonus stats, but who in their right mind will use a 4 star card to give sp and some bonus points to another 4 star card??? Those are better used or saved for 5 stars cards.
I don’t know if I’ll play this game for very long, especially if Nintendo and Intelligent Systems don’t so something about it crashing so dang hard. It crashes quite often for me on the menu screen. ON THE MENU SCREEN FFS.
This does wet the apetite and made me more intrigued for the mainline FE games, I feel like I should bump Awakening up so I can play it sooner~
Have you heard about this game? Have you downloaded played it already? What do think? Has it crashed for you too, or has it been smooth sailing? Tell me all!
Let’s exchange friend codes!! Mine:

Edit (7/02) :
The game stopped working on my tablet, it wouldn’t let me pass the menu screen. I’ve since made another account on my phone this time, and no issues with crashing. Either the game isn’t optimized for tablets or it is my tablet itself. I don’t know why 😭😭😭😭
Either way, I can’t add back on that account, so add this one pls!!: 3055682546
